Orthodontics for Children

Does Your Child Need Braces?

Does your child…

  • Have early or late tooth loss?
  • Suck their thumb or fingers?
  • Have speech difficulties?
  • Have a jaw that shifts, makes sounds, or protrude?
  • Grind or clench their teeth?
  • Snore or is a heavy mouth breather?

 

When Should My Child See An Orthodontist?

  • Is your Child 7 or older?

Many parents wonder when their child should visit the orthodontist, when they should have treatment and how long the treatment will last.  The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that an orthodontist see children as early as age 7.
